Two blocks north of Madison Square Park in Manhattan’s increasingly trendy NoMad (north of Madison Square, if you’re not up on your neighborhood acronyms) neighborhood is 241 Fifth Avenue, a 20-story boutique residential glass tower. Part of the Madison Avenue North Historic District, the building was designed by Perkins Eastman Architects and received landmarks approval in 2007. It was completed in 2013, and according to public records, its penthouse unit just sold for $8 million. Core originally held the listing at $9.75 million.
The 3,080-square-foot, full-floor penthouse has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. In addition, it boasts a 958-square-foot roof terrace, which is complete with a full kitchen and a hot tub. The real selling point here, though, is the incredible southern view; the New York Life Building appears close enough to touch with the Flatiron Building and Freedom Tower in the background. The apartment itself is not too shabby either.
The sleek, modern design of the unit is the perfect compliment to the expansive windows, and the white oak floors and neutral fixtures leave plenty of room for creativity in design.
241 Fifth Avenue welcomes residents into a sleek, contemporary lobby. The building has a rooftop deck, fitness center, Zen tranquility room for yoga or meditation, residence lounge, and wellness room that offers massages and beauty treatments. With all of those amenities, plus the gorgeous apartment, will the new owner ever need to leave? Maybe just to make a Shake Shack run.
